It’s not all about being brutal!
Sometimes a gentle whisper can convert the biggest enemy! Always be open to a multitude of techniques – subtle and brutal. To win the battle you must know the weaknesses of your opponent. Never underestimate the true power of unadulterated compassion for all! The sword is but a mechanism to direct energies – it can cut with love or hate. Be sure to only cut with love! Wielding a sword of hate will help no-one.
